The Baie Verte Peninsula Special Olympics Bowling Team known as the “Strikers” has had another busy and successful year.

The Strikers invited the Special Olympians from the Clarenville area to join them in spending the first weekend of May in Baie Verte. For the two days they enjoyed camp fires, fireworks, bowling, awards presentations and dancing.

The event saw 18 different organizations and businesses meet and bowl at scheduled times throughout the day.  According to a spokesperson for the bowling team, the event had great support from the communities of Pacquet, Baie Verte , Middle Arm and La Scie.
